Looking for an express cruiser with wind-in-your hair performance? Ruth Pearl, a 2019 Cruisers Yachts 54 Cantius, just entered the market with a sale price just shy of $1.1 million.

With a displacement of 45,000 pounds, twin Volvo Penta D8 IPS800 diesel engines with a 1,200 combined horsepower, will quickly push this yacht up to a max speed of 37 knots. At a 25-knot cruising speed, range is a reported 220 nautical miles. A Seakeeper SK6 keeps the Ruth Pearl stable as a table underway.

Well-built and thoughtfully designed, the Cruisers 54 Cantius should fit into many boating lifestyles — seamlessly. The 54 Cantius’s layout flows smoothly from the cockpit with settee (and retractable sunshade) past the galley, which opens to the cockpit, to the entertaining area with dinette and couch, to the helm, as reported in Yachting.

Climb aboard the Ruth Pearl and up a few steps from the swim platform to the aft cockpit where guests can be seated on the U-shaped settee with table, or belly up to the aft-galley bar on two white padded stools. The cockpit is very spacious for a small party while cruising, but if the sun becomes an issue, extend the electric awning to add shade. Take a dive off the swim platform, or an onshore excursion to a private beach for lunch in a 10’5″ tender mounted on a lift attached to the swim platform. Feel like you need a little rinsing off after a swim? There is an outdoor shower to keep guests from having to enter the lower deck heads. Owners have access to an electric grill and ice maker in the cockpit with the aft-galley just through a set of sliding glass doors. 

The galley is centrally located between the cockpit and salon, allowing owners to easily entertain guests in both areas. Lock open the sliding glass doors, open a large window pane in the galley and you will have an open-air environment throughout the cockpit, galley and salon. The galley has a built-in microwave, dishwasher, stove, ice maker and expandable table along with a U-shaped gunmetal settee with table in the salon. Windows flanking the salon allow natural light to illuminate the galley, salon and helm. Additional sunlight is available through a sunroof that can be opened above the helm and dining area.

Rainy evening? Relax in the salon while watching TV on a retractable flat-screen TV with a Bose surround-sound system. No need to head back in, the storm will pass. The salon is laid out in blackened oak and tan oak interior with an amtico sole in walnut and a gunmetal upholstered loveseat. Grab a bottle of wine from the 120v wine captain, open the power sunroof and open a few windows to let the breeze flow through. 

The forward helm is located starboard side across from the U-shaped settee with a captain’s chair large enough to seat two. Ruth Pearl was outfitted with the Raymarine electronics package, sonar, 6 kW HD open-array radar, two Axiom XL 16″ displays with remote, joystick remote docking, VHF radio, FLIR and autopilot, ensuring the captain will have a comfortable and safe cruise. Two large windshields as well as large side windows to port and starboard allow the captain a full view of the surroundings.
